The person lives in a suburb just 2 miles south of Adelaide center and is utterly alone. I am worried (that's my job) that this person will need some friendly support for a day or two.
I would have been a mess if I had been alone. It would be nice if someone stopped by and checked in.

I will not give out any personal info here - nor should you.
Please contact me at my email and I will give you further details.

There are a number of Prostate Cancer Support Groups around Adelaide. The one at Mitcham would be a couple of miles south of Adelaide CBD, so may service the area of your person.

Their web site is at and they list a couple of personal contacts on that page.

I just got this note:

"It's was supposed to be this tues but they called me that someone more urgent needs that time so mines postponed."
I don't know the new date.

What? Just like that you can have the surgery date changed?! That must be awful!
On the other hand you do have national health care so that is a plus.

Thanks for the info. I will pass it on.

I just looked up Mitcham and see it is a 5 minute drive/ 42 minutes walk from their house. Close!
